I'm sent on a Moving & Handling patients course by work to make sure I'm up to date with legislation, technique and equipment. Luckily I'm chosen to be the guinea pig to sit IN the hoist while being swung around. I also get to lie on the trolley bed to be rolled and moved by slide sheets. A few moments more and I could have dropped off to sleep.

Another raft of blood tests to compare with the first. Plus some more, to check my hepatitis status and whether I have an autoimmune version.
In 'medspeak' an ASMA and AMA blood test.
In layman terms an 'anti smooth muscle autoantibody' and 'Antimitochondrial autoantibody' blood test.
Not to be confused with checking midi-chlorians as they belong in Star Wars. This is someone with too many Midi-chlorians who wasn't Anakin Skywalker.

We set off on a trip to visit Stonehenge and then family living in Slindon, Richmond and Ealing. I'm worried about the driving, but sitting doing nothing for hours followed by lounging in bed&breakfasts suits me and I feel rested and better. This is us on the shingle at Hayling Island.
